Shoot on sight 24/7 365 and they'd still survive just fine, and might just be all the better for it.

get in line, I offered up a stock trailer a long time ago  :chuckle:



They'd cure the hoof rot problem, why aren't you in favor of that?


They prey on the weak and sick remember?  Seems like a no brainer to get some of these wolves on the wetside to me.


My offer stands, I'll haul them on my dime with my stock trailer.

Nothing I've read here changes my mind.  There needs to be pain, and it needs to be felt on the west side before this issue will get the traction it needs to be dealt with how it needs to be dealt with.  Having wolves on this side of the state doesn't cause pain on the west side of the state.   

Jackalope I realize the dairies are gone, I do get to your side of the state from time to time and admittedly I'm overly broad about what constitutes "Seattle".   
I do see a lot of potential impact though on your side of the state. 

I can see a boom/bust cycle of wolves in W/WA and it'll be worse than we experienced here in E/WA.
Sorry, I don't see wolves making an impact on the vast majority of voters. Sure it will affect wildlife but who cares except a few hunters. That is a pretty small minority anymore.
I don't really see that much economic impact to W WA. Not a lot of ranchers here.  Even when the wolves pick off a few hobby farm animals State officials will throw up their hands and say "Well, they are Federally listed so out of our hands, Too bad, so sorry, tough luck!
And to be honest I don't see wolves expanding very fast here on the Peninsula at least. We're already in a predator pit.
:yeah:I'd guess if anything the city folks will get swayed even more toward some positive vibe of wolves.  Some socialist non-profits will fund documentaries that Pugetropolis will watch and get cuddlies from.  Probably be all kinds of news articles that will praise wolf returns and gloss over the damages.  It's kind of like all those documentaries and articles about the Elwha dam removal leading people to think removing derelict dams has brought back all kinds of major salmon runs and made the park flourish again.

The majority of buzz is positive. As put the "Eco-freaks" could not have written a better plan and probably had an influence on this one.  I think for the most part the whole thing is hype and will waste a bunch of money planning for something that probably won't happen. But..... If it does happen the extreme crowd will be happy and the same lobbys and organizations that largely support Kretz will be all hands on deck trying to protect their rural producers and constituent base that will feel the greatest impact. The fido argument holds no water, however the tourism to rural communities platform is already being presented(with validity).

A while back a school did a study about he tourism claims and found many are very slanted.  Millions were visiting Yellowstone anyways and they just pass around a questionnaire about wanting to see wolves, which people just checked as an ancillary interest--even though they were more likely wanting to see Old Faithful, see some 'animals' and drive in a historic park.  I recall there were only about twenty people over the same number of years that specifically went to/are going to Yellowstone primarily for wolves.  Tens of thousands of elk hunters were going to the greater Yellowstone area for elk and had a real tourist economic affect on the area.

MISERY LOVES COMPANY :chuckle: :chuckle:
You all know there has to be so many breeding pairs on both sides of state .Yet when it is affecting you or wet side of the state.You have a problem.Honest I don't care where they move them , just get them out of NE Washington..One less wolf in NE Washington benefits us.The way I hear a few of you crying right now tells me the voice against wolves will be louder when wolves hit the wet side.
Uhhhhh was they’re here ! And have been for awhile  :bash:
